ODNR plans Monday meeting in Salem on abandoned mines

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources will hold an open house Monday in Salem to discuss abandoned mines.

It will be the first of several open houses in Ohio that will allow the ODNR Division of Mineral Resources management staff to answer questions about mines that were left abandoned before 1977, when the legislation that addressed reclaiming these mine lands went into effect.
 
They will explain the policies and procedures of Ohio's Abandoned Mine Land Program, as well as discuss proposed future projects.

In November, ODNR will apply for more than $10 million in grant funding from the U.S. Department of the Interior for these projects, which are expected to be completed between January 2014 and December 2016.
 
Any landowners with abandoned mines located on their property are encouraged to present details on the mines and to check on eligibility for funding.

All open houses are from 5-7 p.m. Surrounding counties will meet at this specified location:
